    Any NBA team would be well served to hire Ty as an assistant. Classy guy, cares about players as people, tons of experience. I've (in my infinite wisdom as someone who watches b-ball, haha) concluded, though, he doesn't have a real future as a head coach (or GM), so if this is true, back where he belongs.

    Just don't see the driving vision. Also never once heard him say, "Out [whatever] sucked tonight [or in general]... ...always "we were a little bit [whatever]."

    Not exactly Popovichian...

    "Sacramento is a joke of an organization."

    Sacramento's organization looks like the U.S. Marines when compared to the Jazz. Actually, you're probably calling Sacramento a joke because you're a Jimmer Fredette fan who thinks he was mismanaged by the Kings, despite the fact that he's playing even less in Chicago. Let me guess: The Bulls organization is a joke too, right?

    Well, I guess it is a job and should pay the bills.

    Sacramento is a joke of an organization though.

    Did not have the spine to enforce defense..he was simply too nice...players clearly did not take him seriously from an expectation standpoint. Kanter played despite being a defensive doormat while clearly possessing the ability to move his feet and defend.

    Ty set the standard by allowing Al Jefferson to get away with offense only and the others sat, watched, and learned the difference between what Ty said and what he actually did.

    Thibodeau on the other hand has an $80 million towel-waver named Boozer on the bench at the end of many games when defense matters most. Amnesty upcoming for him.

    Best of luck to Ty though...he is a good dude.

    Ty is a great guy.

    Whether it's in Sacramento or somewhere else, I'm sure he'll do well and wish only the best for him and his family.

    I wish Ty great thing. He has been a great asset to the Jazz both as player and as coach. I hope he can further develop as a top tier coach in the league.

    Wishing the very best situation for Ty and his family! I so enjoyed him when he was a Jazz player and his time with the coaching staff. He is a true gentleman and deserves another opportunity to continue in his career. Good luck, Ty!
